Anagram for Psycho
(33 Short Films About Pochsy)
33 MICROFILMS Written and Directed by Karen Hines and Sandi Somers.
Adapted from 'The Pochsy Plays,' an award-winning theatrical trilogy, and evolving from the prize-winning shorts 'My Name is Pochsy: A Industrial Film,' and 'A Tax on Pochsy (a.k.a. The Audit),' the last in this series, 'Anagram for Psycho (33 Short Films About Pochsy)' will make up the third in a lustrously designer set.
This 33-minute ode to a century of industrial propaganda and corporate mission statements is both a scathing satire and and a tragi-documentary of a day in the life of doomed mercury plant worker, Pochsy. The comedy is black, the horror is terrifying, but the outfits are adorable.
